Mahboobe Sabaghian; Fateme Ahmadi Boyaghchi

Volume 2, Issue 2 , Spring 2015, , Pages 9-22


  Energy, exergy and exergoeconomic (3E) evaluation are performed to assess the performance of a NH3/H2O cycle integrated with parabolic trough solar collectors (PTSC). To provide continuous electricity produced by generator when solar beam radiation is insufficient a stabilizer temperature subsystem is ...  Read More
